Orlando is known for many things: tourists, bad drivers, strip malls, theme parks, and conventions. Luckily for us, Orlando is a relatively convention heavy city. If you like science fiction, comic books, movies, and gaming, it’s actually not a bad place to hang your hat. Each year at the Orlando Science Center we’re lucky enough to have Otronicon, a convention that focuses on gaming and new technology. I’m happy to say that 2011’s Otronicon is the best yet.
Say what you will about Microsoft’s Kinect Peripheral, having sold 8 million units since launch it’s a colossal hit. Check out some insane things people have done with Kinect, including Avatar Kinect announced today at CES 2011
I’m a convention nerd. I pretty much always have been. My first convention was at a local Holiday Inn in Fort Myers Florida. It featured “Q” from Star Trek the Next Generation and Buck Rogers star Erin Grey. I remember loving it, even though by today’s convention standards it was pretty awful. I’ve also managed to make it out to my fair share of Comic Cons in San Diego. For those that have not been, it’s the nerd version of the Hajj. Every once in a while you’ll luck out at a convention and capture a really amazing moment.
“So, Capcom decided to farm out its licenses to Western developers. It was their hope that this formula would generate more cash, and some more western fans. The big problem is a lot of the “Capcom” games produced out of Japan received less than stellar reviews and no where near the quality of “actual” Capcom games. It was like putting a Ferarrai sticker on La Baron convertible and expecting people not to notice that they’re different cars.”

Holiday booty that is! Since my brothers in nerdery are in the process of moving to a new lair and/or stalking Kristen Bell or something, I figured I’d keep the dream alive and continue my mad holiday posting spree. What else am I supposed to do with 17 days off? Because it’s always fun to discuss what you got for the holidays, let’s make some more fracking lists.
With SWTOR slated for Q1 2011 many of us are already within its “force grip”, so to speak. I have friends that ask me on a weekly basis what class and specialization I plan on playing, so I figured I may as well make a list for those that haven’t yet decided what to roll. Enjoy this compilation of information gathered from a variety of resources that may make the decision a bit easier.
Today the FCC voted for the adoption of "Net Neutrality" regulations and it passed 3-2. So what does this mean? It's a bit confusing, it is a mostly watered down version of what once was a truly convincing argument for…
With Christmas less than a week away we here at Nerd Appropriate are more busy than Phillps (…zing). I had plans to write a few breathtakingly long intellectual articles filled with factoids and quotes from interesting people, but I figured I’d spare you all for now and just tell you what I’ve been up to this weekend. Welcome to Weekend Warrior ™.
New, DLC was released for Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II this week. But, these may not be the DLC packs you’re looking for.
Buying Super Castlevania IV from the virtual console should have been the second thing you did with the Wii. The first, of course, was figuring out how to cheat the system at Wii Sports bowling. SCIV first hit store shelves in December 1991, and 19 years later, it still offers excellent platforming and one of the best soundtracks in gaming. Be sure to check out the music tribute video toward the end.
